As most of you guys know, GuitarBackingTrack.com has been dealing with licensing and royalty issues for awhile now.
You can learn more about this situation here and here. We are making good progress with the music publishers who own and control the copyrights of the songs that our backing tracks use, which is positive.
However, offering unlimited, free-to-download backing tracks to everyone is not a sustainable business. We need to pay a significant royalty for each download of a backing track. In order to help reduce our costs and try to keep GuitarBackingTrack.com free we are forced to limit the number of downloads to 3 per day. As always though, you can stream BTs online as much as you like absolutely free and with no restriction!
Rest assured, we're planning to keep GuitarBackingTrack.com free in the future and are working hard to add new features and functions to improve the site. If you haven't seen it yet, we recently implemented a BT comments section so that you could say thanks to the Authors and share your opinions about their tracks. More new cool free features are coming in near future!
We welcome your input and thoughts on this issue. We are trying to figure out how we can provide a site that meets your needs as musicians while simultaneously balancing the licensing and royalty challenges. What do you do with the backing tracks once you download them? Do you just listen to them and see if they meet your needs and then delete the ones you don't like? Do you download a bunch at once and then listen later? Getting a better notion of how you guys use downloaded BTs may help us work out a better way to manage royalties and licensing issues, so we hope to get some feedback from you.
Thanks for being with GuitarBackingTrack.com and for your understanding!

Hey guys!
Something has changed today!

We've finally implemented the comments!
Now you can say thanks to the Author of the backing tracks you love! :)

Also feel free to discuss the backing track and ask questions you have about it!

Stay tuned for more new features really soon!

Hey guys!
So what do you think if we modernized our player a little bit and allowed users to turn off and on instruments being played in the backing track?
Would you be willing to send to us separate mp3 files for each instrument line?

Share your thoughts and suggestions here!

By the way in the footer of our website you can now see a link to a really helpful step-by-step guide on creating a simple backing track :)

Here's the direct link as well ----> https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/lessons/the_guide_to/how_to_create_a_guitar_backing_track.html

Rock on!

So guys, we're going to implement some new features to the website pretty soon!

In fact we already have done some minor changes!
I think some of you noticed that now on the Submit page you don't need to fill out Author's name and email if you're logged into your GuitarBackingTrack.com account.
That's right. Now if you're logged in, your submission gets attached to your GBT.com account automatically. 

That's is done so because in perspective we're going to implement a proper profile section where you'll be able to see all stats concerning all the tracks you've submitted.

However now we're facing a small problem.
Some Backing Track Authors have been continuously submitting their BTs without having a GBT account with the same name which they stated as Author.

For example someone was logged on GBT.com under "GuitarGod" but stated BT's Author name as "MichaelJ".

We offer two options for you if you recognize that scenario described above is your case.

Option 1.
Please register a new GBT.com account with the same name that you used to state as Author's name.
After that please send an email to me saying something like this:
"Hey guys, I've registered an account with username which I state as BT's author's name. Please attach all submissions submitted by me to my newly created  GBT account with the same name"

Option 2.
If you don't mind that all your Backing Tracks change Author's name to your current GBT.com username, please send to me the following email:
"Hey there, I used to submit tracks with Author's name being "xxxxxx", however my GBT.com account is under username "yyyyyyy". Please transfer my tracks to my account "yyyyyyy".

If you don't have an account at all, please register a GBT.com account which you want to be associated with your submissions from now on.
In this case we'll need some proves that you're indeed a submitter of tracks in question.

You can also ask questions here and I am sure we'll work something out if you have any problems.

Rock on!

Backing Tracks / Backing Track Guide

Hey Guys!
How about compiling a nice guide on how to make backing tracks?
We believe a good guide would definitely allow more guitarists to create new backing tracks and share them!

Do you know any existing guides featuring various DAWs and VST plugins on the Internet?
Share your experience and useful links here!
I am sure we'll come up with a cool guide eventually.

For iOS there's a pretty cool app which has more than 4k ready made guitar tone presets.
It's called Tonebridge

You can plug your guitar into iPhone or iPad and enjoy the original song's tone without any amp or pedal tuning  :)

Rock on!

Hi there guys!
Welcome to GBT.com!
Rock on!

Hey! It's really easy :)

You just need to enter artist or song name in search field in top right corner.

You can browse through the alphabetical order as well.
For example go to
 M ---> Metallica ---> the Unforgiven 

Easy Peasy :)
